    To be honest I'm thinking yellow and I have a gray MS. I also have dark wheels.

    I'm torn also and haven't decided if I'm going with the red calipers with the grey and grey wheels. Here are a couple of pictures a product specialist at the local service center emailed me. grey w red calipers2.jpg grey w red caliper 1.jpg

    This IS my car. I think this is really a personal preference. My personal preference is black. That being said. If I had the red car I'd do the grey wheels and the red calipers.

    I live in wa state and I've seen the grey/grey with red caliper combo and in the he winter the red gts really dirty and looks dirty here's my black ones don't really show the dirt so maybe just something to think about.

    I think the red look better when the car is new. The red doesn't look as good as it gets dirty.

    For anyone in the right age bracket, that color always makes me think of these Decepticons:

    I think adding a touch of color is good here over plain Black.
    I actually like Yellow, Green and Red!

    and remember, if you wrap them, its much easier to change if you want another color. I'm thinking of lime green :cool:
